    Wow.



    Probably front loaded as hell with CLE's massive cap space.

    His aav is higher than his ypc.

    His 47 guaranteed will probably be higher than his ypg, too.

    They can afford to hand out this contract as long as they hit on a QB with the #1 pick.

    It's a big contract, but it doesn't matter. They're on the hook for just three years. More likely than not, the Browns won't be contenders just yet, but they needed to do this to ensure that they continue to move forward to eventually get to contender status.

    I like the guy but it seems like an overpayment for him. Have to see what happens with him this year.

    It's too much, but what other choice does Cleveland have if they want to attract good players to play there?

    CLE needs a solid receiver to play with their expected franchise QB, its too much money (for now) but they really have no choice.

    In all likelihood, Landry won't be around when the franchise QB is ready to put the team over the top. For now, Landry seems like a good fit for Taylor, but I imagine the Browns would like to eventually find a more traditional #1 WR for their franchise QB than to spend all that money on a 2nd big contract for a slot receiver.

    He's not a slot WR despite what his low YPC might imply. If a #1 WR is supposed to be a player that gives you high volume, every down dependability and a player the offense can run through, then he fulfills those parameters. This is a guy who averages 100 catches a season in the MIAMI DOLPHINS offense.

    Besides all that, if Sammy Watkins can make $16 million a year.....

    Thats a lot of money for a good but not great WR.

    This is as much a PR move as a football move. The team wants to show fans they are trying to get better, so they're going to overpay a decent but not special WR.

    I mean, he is all of those other things.. but he's definitely a slot WR.

    Too much but it's a deal that shouldn't hurt CLE too much. Assuming it's front loaded.

    Pretty much the only team that could give him this money and not look incredibly stupid.

    And he had a negative effect when they ran the offense through him because he's not explosive.

    That is entirely too much...but why the hell else would you sign up to spend multiple years of your prime with the Browns?

    Browns know they've been a joke for the last 20 years, their only option is to trade for and pay guys like Landry big bucks. Also why they were OK with bringing Flash G back, players aren't exactly clamouring to come to Cleveland.
